Nature-positive for Climate Action: Science-based targets to achieve climate-positive transition

Context and challenges

~50% of GDP is dependent on nature and ecosystems, yet these have degraded at an unprecedented rate, leading to the 6th mass extinction.

Nature-based solutions could provide up to one-third of the mitigations required by 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement, as well as restore ecosystems which will increase resilience against global warming’s consequences.

It represents USD 10 Tn in business opportunities and a potential to create ~400 Mn new jobs by 2030.

Achieving this will require tripling related investments by 2030 to USD ~48 Bn.

Initiative Description

Nature-positive for Climate Action is an initiative with the global goal to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030, contributing to the 2030 Breakthroughs and the Sharm-el-Sheikh Adaptation agenda.
